It's about time that the LAW finally caught up with, is doing something about our former mayor. Many a Tuesday night I sat in the Aldermanic room only to have him look me straight in the eye and say how the budget cannot be met. Often blaming it on the 2 aldermen not re-elected. I listened to him & read his newsletters about how he was doing everything in his power to get the city straightened out. He announced his resignation & then backed out of it the first time. When the heat of the investigation process got to him, he got out. With the economy as it is, it would cause one to wonder how he could afford his own business, 2 houses in Charlack & now a new home in St. Charles. It all comes to light now.

And clearly so now. Former Mayor? NOT CONVICTED AND NOW IT'S JANUARY!

A gas station attendant is running for Alderman now in Charlack. How does a Gas Station Attendant qualify for home loan? Hmm? Maybe it takes one to know one when it comes to theives, I don't know.

Maybe if people that can see the light provided facts to support their contentions? And not mail out falsified letters in our neighbohood?

FACT: Alderman Chris Brun and Ricard Browning refused to attend meetings starting in June 2011 because former City Police Chief and City Administrator Tony Umbertino (now indicted himself and charged for stealing)told them to miss the meetings. So from June 2011 till April 2012 virtaully no meetings were held. Without meetings expenses can not be paid and bills piled up. If your bills piled up for a year? Are you saying you could write one check to pay them all off? It took months, basically doubling for a year what the city normally pays. Sometimes the city did not have the money to pay double bills so the bills were put back on the shelf further compounding the problem.

You are an idiot claiming to see the light you see nothing and lash out like a child at Beekman because your buddy Umbertino was exposed. Right MC?

If someone like Umbertino is indicted for crimes and charged? And two ELECTED OFFICIALS LIKE BRUN AND BROWNING HELPED COVER AND CONCEAL FOR THIS MAN?

A bigger question is why aren't those two in hot water for aiding and abetting a criminal? Why no conspiracy on Brun and Browning for assisting Umbertino in helping to hide the facts that he stole/misused city funds?
